. >> as you reported on, joe biden could not be a better emissary on this issue, both for the reasons you pointed out, and also he knows personal tragedy and knows it well. so when he speaks about this issue, too, it comes from a personal place. and i think the president is smart in what he is doing here politically, as well. he knows that assault weapons ban, the ban on extended magazines, universal background checks. those are things that a republican congress is not just going to come out and support. he has to remind american people of how important this is. he has to get the american people behind him, and ultimately even if it takes a turnover in the house in 2014, which is something i think we personally could see. even if that is the end game having the american people behind him is ultimately the only way that anything real is going to happen here. >> richard wolff, a word on joe biden today. i was struck watching him lead the way into this subject. that i really cannot think of a more effective, more valuable vice president that we have had. unless you are a big fan of torture a
. >> well, vice-president joe biden met with gun rights groups and safety activists and when the president laid out his gun control plan there was barely any mention of curbing the violence in movies. >> alisyn: there's more work to be done. our next guest says, no. and joining us-- >> good morning, how are you. >> alisyn: is that accurate you don't think that the president has to do more about the video game industry or hollywood? >> no, i think the president actually promised that he would have a broad response. he would have broad actions, i think actually, what he did was breach that promise when you have 23 executive actions and no meaningful action regarding hollywood, and very little regarding this just stunning. hollywood is a huge campaign source and was during the the campaign. we all remember the record breaking, it was the biggest campaign event in history, 15 million dollars, the george clooney dinner and also, hollywood is one of the biggest lobbyists in washingt washington, as a matter of fact, their chief lobbyist is chris dodd from connecticut where the newtown massacre o

more than he bargained for. i love joe biden but not quite as much as jennifer does. someone is always in our war room. check us out on current.com/war room. have a great night have a wonderful weekend and tun in to our inauguration coverage on monday. [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> welcome to "the young turks," i'm the other half of the largest online news show in the world, and tonight i'm here to show you why. yes, it's go time, but it is also my time. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> on today's show we have some very important topics, but one of the most important topics is the assault on women's rights and reproductive rights. now it's the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade, and the republicans have a very perverse way of showingshowingshowing it. throughout the show to help me talk about these issues is michael shure our epic politics man, and also michael hastings, thank you for joining us, gentlemen. >> of course, thank you for having me. >> of course. >> before we get to our conversation let me tell you what the issue is today with reproductive rights. we're seeing stories and reports from the n
was very, very pleased with what i heard from the president and the work that the commission that joe biden heads. there are many steps in the right direction. starting with the executive orders. but the real the crux of the matter is the universal background checks. this is so common sense. it doesn't make any sense that anybody would be opposed to it. as you mentioned in the intro i just got back yesterday from spending time with newtown families. we were very privileged to be invited, roxanne who lost her daughter the same time i was shot and gabriel giffords was shot, to see her speak to families who are just starting this horrible road of grief that no parent should have to go through. it puts a human face on these statisticses that we keep throwing out. >> john: indeed. and i think that that's what is guiding the president through this proposed legislation. but i want to get back to john with the politics. if the senate pass this is package, and then the house kills it, what do you think happens next? and can the democrats benefit long-term if the house republicans demolish this poten
. >>> there he is joe biden taking the oath of office this morning and not far from here in fact over at the naval observatory, and a twist of historic irony perhaps the country's first black president's public swearing is going to happen on the same day that we honor one of america's great civil rights activists, martin luther king jr. we will pause to remember dr. king's birthday and i'd like to bring in andrew young the third, former civil rights leader and ambassador andrew young. good to see you, sir. >> hey, craig, how are you doing? >> great. your father is a long time friend and confidant of reverend king. what have you learned from your father, and also, his generation as well? >> you know, i think that it is very important that we as americans today give each other a faith-saving way out, and that is one thing that my father was adamant about throughout his life is that when you have an opponent and have indifferences about a subject, that you give your opponent a way out. to keep his dignity and that is how you create change, and that is what dr. king and my father and dr.
this morning. vice president joe biden surrounded by his family over at the naval observatory, his residence, for the swearing-in. only a matter of hours ago today. he put his hands on a family 19th century bible with his family for years and that he has been sworn in using since he was first in the senate in 1973. alex? >> okay. peter alexander, thank you very much for the update on both fronts. we appreciate that. back to the panel now, and sally was telling us, michael, you were quoted in her article. in fact, you talked about the unifying nature of a second inaugural. that is part of the reason for doing this. >> sure. you know, we have got in america very few unifying ceremonies and we are in a political system and a country that in certain ways is more fractured than ever. here's one opportunity you wouldn't want to miss. the other thing is that i think we forget sometimes what it was like when barack obama came in. you know, the banking system and the economy were both falling apart, two wars were going on, not doing well, other problems. he didn't have the luxury that most presidents
begin by thanking our vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisible. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children, and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful to all of you for taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. but we also heard from some unexpected people, in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids, four of them are here today, grant fritz, julia stokes, hina ziha and teja good. they're pretty representative of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart, young people. hina, a third grader, you can go ahead and wave hina, that's you. hina wrote, "i feel terrible for the parents who l
